Lately it has gotten even more difficult than usual to get my kids into the bathtub after dinner. I blame the sunlight. “It’s not nighttime, Mommy! Look outside!”

Cue me closing the shades. “Sure it is! Look how dark it is now!”

Also, we haven’t had any good bath toys in awhile…that may have been part of the problem. We were down to using old measuring cups. #momoftheyear

Luckily, TOMY sent us its newest bath toys to check out: See Under the Sea Submarine, Fountain Rocket, and Water Whistler. Keep reading to find out how you can win a set! [Read more…]

It’s All Relative

It’s hard to top last week’s girls’ trip to Atlantic City. Thankfully, things have calmed down a bit in the Big Apple.

This week is about Bethenny seeking answers from her stepfather and things get a bit deep. 

Here are 10 highlights from last night’s Real Housewives of New York… [Read more…]

I’m sorry, but I found this premiere episode to be a total snoozefest. And not just because it started at 9:00 P.M. and went til 11:00.

I didn’t even make it through the whole show. I went to bed at 10:00 and watched the rest of it in the morning. 

The first thing I want to say is I think it’s awful that they billed both Kaitlyn and Britt as The Bachelorette. I originally thought they were both going to duke it out for the guys throughout the entire season.  [Read more…]

No time to wallow in the sadness that Mad Men has ended, my friends. It’s time to move on to another of our favorite shows. Something with a little less “serious drama” and a little more “serious crazy.”

That’s right, it’s the premiere of The Bachelorette! And not just any Bachelorette…there are two ladies vying for the title.

I’m a little pissed, because I thought Chris Harrison meant that Britt and Kaitlyn were going to duke it out for the guys all season long. Turns out, the guys decide which lady stays in the first episode and they send the loser home. WTF. [Read more…]

I seriously don’t know what I was thinking when I got rid of my double stroller a few weeks ago.

Actually, I do know what I was thinking. I never use it. It’s cluttering up the garage. I’ll just get a new one if I need one.

Obviously I was not thinking clearly. But we were having a garage sale and the stroller was out and someone wanted it. So…I sold it. [Read more…]

Well. If that wasn’t the most stress-inducing episode of Real Housewives of New York I have ever seen, I don’t know what is.

The decision to not drink on weeknights was a rough one last night. I could’ve used a big ol’ glass of Ramona Pinot Grigio to get through the first ten minutes!

I literally had to go upstairs and put calming powder in my water. Here are the 10 noteworthy things about last night’s episode… [Read more…]

Every Friday is “Change the Sheets Day” at my house. There’s something so comforting about going to bed in a set of crisp, clean sheets. It even makes me not mind the chore of changing the sheets as much.

I have to admit that I thought by changing my sheets, I was making my bed as clean as it could be. I had no idea that there were millions of dust mites and their droppings lurking in my mattress! Ew. [Read more…]

Nobody Beats The Wiz

Monday again? Really?

I hope everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day, whether you are a mom or are blessed to have a mom to celebrate in your life.

I got to “sleep in” until the late hour of 6:15 A.M. yesterday when I was greeted by my almost-two-year-old and his poopy diaper. But such is the life of a mom, and why would it be any different on Mother’s Day? Kids don’t know that it’s a special day when Mommy is supposed to be pampered. Not quite sure if my husband got the memo, either… [Read more…]

I can now safely say that I know how Martha Stewart felt when she was under house arrest, because I, too, am currently a prisoner in my own home. [Read more…]
